Day Ten: His Choices

A wise man will hear and increase learning,
and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel.
- Proverbs 1:5
Lord, fill my husband with the fear of the Lord and give him wisdom for every decision he makes. May he reverence You and Your ways and seek to know Your truth. Give him discernment to make decisions based on Your revelation. Help him to make godly choices and keep him from doing anything foolish. Take foolishness out of his heart and enable him to quickly recognize error and avoid it. Open his eyes to clearly see the consequences of any anticipated behavior.
I pray that he will listen to godly counselors and not be a man who is unteachable. Give him strength to reject the counsel of the ungodly and hear Your council above all others. I declare that although "there are many plans in a man's heart, nevertheless the Lord's counsel - that will stand" (Proverbs 19:21). Instruct him even as he is sleeping (Psalm 16:7^), and in the morning, I pray he will do what's right rather than follow the leading of his own flesh. I know the wisdom of this world is foolishness with You, Lord (I Corinthians 3:19). May he not buy into it, but keep his eyes on You and have ears to hear Your voice.* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
^ I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
- Psalm 16:7
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
- Proverbs 1:7
